The Superhero Show Show #373

Van Helsing vs The Hellfire Gala

The Taste Buds review the latest episode of Van Helsing, plus the gowns of The Hellfire Gala, on an all-new episode of The Superhero Show Show!

On an all-new episode of The Superhero Show Show, Cassie and the Boyz are FINALLY diving into Syfy’s Van Helsing. Having slipped under the podcast’s radar for years, the Taste Buds chose the fifth and final season of the show to start reviewing it. And the titular character isn’t in it. And it takes place in the past. And Kim Coates is in it. And it’s hard to follow. But follow they do, as they help out other new viewers with finding something to grab on to.

Then the Taste Buds review every other show based on a comic book that came out this week, including BLACK LIGHTNING, FEAR THE WALKING DEAD, INVINCIBLE, AND SUPERGIRL!

 

And then, we’ve got another big, beefy interview for you! This time, Cassie sat down with DJ BenHaMeen & Tatiana King from the podcast, ForAllNerdsThe three talk about the history of their show, WandaVision, why they catch things in pop culture straight white guys don’t, and so much more!

The ForAllNerds Show are the Multicultural Maestros. ForAllNerds discusses the week in geek while keeping an ear to the street for the topics and controversies that affect the world of fandom–all from the perspective of people of color. Show hosts DJ BenHaMeen and Tatiana King serve as the cultural guides for this unique show, along with a revolving cast of guests that run the gamut of industries–from hip hop and politics, to comics, movies, television and video games. Follow the show on IG @forallnerds & Twitter @ForAllNerds.
Everyone will hear a 15-minute version of the interview on the episode, but you can the full 30+ minute interview in all of its glory over on Patreon!

And finally, X-TASmania takes a break this week, so the Taste Buds can review the incredible gowns and suits of The Hellfire Gala! Emma Frost is throwing a party, and everyone is getting dressed up! The Friends also invite Greg, from the Movie of the Year podcast, to help them rank all of the clothes.

All of that, and so much more, on an all-new The Superhero Show Show!!!
